Home Loan Strategist originating Conventional, FHA, VA and Jumbo loans. Chritine helps educate borrowers on loan programs available and the complete loan process.
My mission is to educate and assist borrowers in selecting the best loan option for your specific needs. I understand you have many options for financing and I am prepared to earn your long term trust. Communication and education are the most important pieces to the puzzle.
I believe in the golden rule, Treat others how you would like to be treated.
23 years ago I started my career as a Realtor right out of College. I sold a few friends new homes and they got what I consider “bad financing”. As I researched lending to understand how I could better help future buyers, I found myself very attracted to that side of the business. I made it my mission to ensure that the borrowers I helped be educated on their financing options.
I started as a loan processor which taught me how to structure borrower’s personal documents in order to receive loan approval and worked my way up to an underwriting position where I actually approved borrowers for financing.
I understand the Trust and teamwork necessary to go from a signed purchase contract to a closed loan. . I go the extra mile to provide a good experience for all clients so they can’t wait to refer their friends and family.
I am part of a national marketing group that is helps Real Estate Agents and their Borrowers stand out by using up to date marketing systems, strategies, social media and technology.

Dear Realtors and Buyers,
We just finish escrow on our new home. Christine Furnari was highly recommended to us to do our home loan. We are so happy that we chose her. She is extremely knowledgeable and worked very hard to find us the best loan. She is very detail oriented, fast and efficient. Even in this market she was able to finalize our loan in record time! We would recommend her to anyone, and would not use anyone but her in our future ventures!
Sincerely, Douglas and Nancy Neal
To whom it may concern:
In 2008 Christine helped us fund a distressed sale, navigating a frustrating and time consuming bank process to get us one of the last 80/10/10 loans available from any lender. When interest rates improved in late 2010, Christine was there for us again, helping us refi into an 80/20 with competitive cost and no points. She went to bat for us with the loan rate lock, and came in 1/8 pt lower than prevailing rates for the day, saving $ each month. Overall the refi saves us more than $500/mth, with a total cost of what the original 80% loan was - with no second and no PMI. Christine is a wise counselor who is straightforward about the facts of the situation, calling on her experience to inform and direct, without being overbearing or rude. She is committed to making each interaction pleasant and is patient with the inevitable documentation issues that come up during mortgage applications. I do not hesitate to recommend Christine to you.
Cordially, Sam Gramlich
My name is Sue Summers and I am a whole sale account executive for Plaza Home Mortgage.
Christine Furnari submitted a number of loans to me & I highly recommend her for the following reasons:
She prequalifies her loans by reviewing them with me prior to submission.
Consequently her "pull through" ratio is excellent.
Christine is very knowledgeable & professional.
She takes great pride in her work & looks after her clients' best interests.
